apple pie ice cream

You may be under the impression that I have boundless energy.  Decorating pumpkins, taking endless pictures of leaves, and churning my own butter in my spare time.  Confession, I'm one of the laziest people I know.


Here is why.  When an apple pie craving strikes, the thought of cutting myself a slice, walking to the freezer, finding the vanilla ice cream under all of the frozen fruit, searching every single drawer in the kitchen for the ice cream scoop, warming the slice in the microwave for an entire minute and a half, and scooping the ice cream is way too complicated.  I usually end up eating the pie cold. With my hands. And that's no fun.

That's why I invented this little concoction, apple pie ice cream.  This recipe does not require an ice cream maker.  Mainly because I am too lazy to order one. But boy is this stuff good.  Apples sauteed in butter, graham cracker crumbs, and homemade caramel sauce make this ice cream taste just like apple pie.

Funny how I'm totally willing to churn my own ice cream, yet too "lazy" to reheat a slice of pie in the microwave.

With love,
Erica

  1. OH yeahhh. Guess who has all those ingredients and will be making this reallll soon??

    Lol and I am totally the same way. Apple pie is the best warm with ice cream as you described, in my opinion, but I often eat it straight out of the fridge with a fork. Silliness.

    1. I am so excited! Tell me how yours comes out! Mine was a HUGE hit at my school baking club! I am glad I am not the only one who frequently eats cold pie from the fridge.

    I've been meaning to make an apple crisp ice cream for months. Have you ever been to TCBY? I haven't been there myself, but my friend told me they make killer apple crisp fro-yo so I'm going to try to recreate it with ice cream.
